The Pan Am family shelter claimed its first victim – a three-year-old boy was tragically beaten to death there by his ex-con father in mid-November. The Administration for Children’s Services had removed the child from the custody of his parents earlier in the year but returned him about a month before his murder. The father is now being held at Rikers. Housing violent abusers with their victims, especially children, is a really bad policy. Rest in peace, little one.
